USIT conducts research and receives funding for art/practice based research from the Swedish National Research Council since 2005.

Our research transgresses conventional academic domains but at the same time uses our specialized competences in musical composition, architecture, urban design, sound art, sound design, acoustic simulation and technical acoustics. Investigations are oriented on urban sounds and sound in public space.

The members of USIT have tenure connections to the Department of Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, The Academy of Music and Drama at Gothenburg University, and The University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) in Stockholm.

We teach within academic institutions as well as through independent workshops, lecturing etc.
